- The recipe that I have shared is like a basic keto/low carb coconut chutney recipe. You can change it as per your taste and preference.
- You can grate the whole coconut in bulk and store it in the freezer for up to 3 weeks. This way, you can save the time to make this chutney. Chutney made out of freshly shredded coconut or coconut meat is tastier than frozen shredded coconut.
- You can also add coriander leaves or mint to this chutney. Makes the chutney green in color.
- You can also increase or decrease the amount of green chili as per your preference. If you dont have green chilies you can also replace them with dried red chilies while blending.
- If you like peanuts, you can add some roasted peanuts to this chutney gives the chutney a nutty flavor OR you can add 1 tablespoon of chopped almonds or almond flour.
- You can also add some curry leaves while blending the chutney. I sometimes do it and the taste is amazing.
- Some people add roasted gram/fried gram/putani to the chutney. But since this is a keto coconut chutney recipe. I have not added it.
- Add lemon juice or tamarind for more tanginess.
